I can’t recall where or when I saw a bottle cutting kit, but I spied it somewhere a few months ago and thought it was completely cool. Around the same time, I saw a set of tumblers in a local shop made from the bottoms of wine bottles and thought they were a great way to repurpose old bottles into drinking glasses.
DIYer that I am, I determined bottle cutting was definitely on my ‘learn to do this’ list ASAP. The kit I bought (seen below) ended up on a shelf in my office shortly after it arrived months ago, but last weekend as I was cleaning and sorting I noticed it again, and decided to give it a try. I spent a fall morning experimenting with the kit with mixed results, but in the end arrived at two decent cut glass vases made from a wine bottle and a champagne bottle.

I must caution you, in my limited experience, this kit was a hit and a miss. The miss may be attributed to my lack of skills in this craft, but I did not end up with perfect edges. Read on!
